Speaking at the event which was covered by, Nana Agyemang Badu II called on the indigenes of the region to come together and fight for development.

While there have been advocacies for the Bono language to be written, he said all the versions of the Twi language emanated from Techiman in the Bono Region.

Touted as the first people of the Akan ethnic group to have settled in Ghana, the Dormaamanhene urged the people of Bono to be proud of themselves and their language.

“The Bono language can be written. It can be used to write any book and taught in schools. As I always say, there is no way I will hide my Bono language. I will speak it everywhere I will go,” he stressed.

Nana Agyemang Badu II further eulogized the organizers of the Meko Bono Homecoming and Festival for such a great initiative.

For his part, the Paramount Chief of Suma Traditional Area, Odeneho Dr Affram Brempong III, bemoaned over how the lack of unity is causing the people of Bono.

He also preached about unison and fighting towards a common goal.

Dr Affram Brempong reminisced how ‘Bono Ntoma’ (Bono cloth), firstly made in the Bono Region was learned by other tribes—and the name subsequently changed to Kente and others.

As he hurriedly talked about the Adinkra symbol which also originated from the Bono Region, he emphasized that the people of Bono have a lot of things that should make them proud.

Activities for the main event will commence from June 25 to July 3, 2022.
